The serial number does not allow you to track the computer. It is a printed number on the bottom that allows you (or the police) to identify that a recovered computer belongs to you.

There are certain software programs available that you can download onto your computer. If the computer is stolen, they are meant to communicate information back to you to help you find it through the internet. The method of tracking depends on which software you have purchased.
